"Stand on It" is a song written and originally recorded by Bruce Springsteen. Springsteen initially released it as the non-LP B-side of the "Glory Days" single in May of 1985; the track was also featured in the film Ruthless People and its accompanying soundtrack album. "Stand On It" later appeared in a slightly revised version on Springsteen's outtakes and B-sides compilation Tracks.
A little over a year after Springsteen's release, the song was recorded by American country music artist, Mel McDaniel. It was released in September 1986 as the lead single from McDaniel's album, Just Can't Sit Down Music. It peaked at number 12 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart and number 5 on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart.
